There is, one is short & one is tall, but -- with appropriate change in cross-section and vents -- you can put one or two drivers in either one.

Well, then i prefer the taller one since it put the EL70 higher up than the shorter one.
Since there is two different ones, is it possible to make a third even taller without changing the sound?

I just came up with an idea. Wouldn't it be possible to tilt them back somewhat to become less off-axis?
Just place some spacers or something underneath the front of the cabinet to tilt them back a little.

I think i may go calculate how much i'd need to tilt them. But not today, been doing enough math for today :P

As to a taller one, you'd have to ask Scott. The existing tall one goes plenty low.

Yeah, i bet they will go low enough for me. But i just want the EL70 to be quite on-axis since it sounds better that way than being very off-axis.

What would the sonic differences be between two EL166 and an ERT26 tweeter versus two EL166 and an EL70? Ofcourse crossover is different and the EL70 version is a little more expensive.

Thinking of this as my school project for next year and hoping to get some sort of sponsorship

A crossover too high for the spacing, drivers near the limits of their passband, XO right where ear/brain most sensitive

vrs

A crossover where driver spacing ~ 1/4 wl, drivers with lots of passband around XO, XO where ear/brain is less sensitive

So, it is well worth the extra cost for the el70 then I suppose. Thanks!

If you wanted to stick with MA drivers, the Alpair 6P would be another candidate - the 6M's can dig deep enough for HT rear/surrounds, and I've heard the 6P solo in a smallish box - I can't see either of them not working well as mid-tweeter. The big question would be choice and method of XO (i.e. frequency point and active/passive), and amplification (which could also be DIY'ed) .

A school project with thorough documentation of the decision making and design process, as well as the construction, could be very impressive to the teachers, and a great shared learning experience. You might even be able to sell a few.
